Yes, you are used to a more strict (or anyway, different) development
process than some others. I've hardly ever been in a situation where
"the last step" I need to do before commit is clean up everything NOT
under source control. Does Subversion really need special support for
this methodology?

Also, I think your last sentence undermines the whole proposal:

If you "blow your checkin by forgetting to add a file", then that file
will be one of the items removed by the cleanup, and you will lose it!

This is exactly why Subversion probably shouldn't offer this feature. :-)
